Problem. Two lines intersect the graph y=x^2 . The secant line intersects the graph at point A and B and the tangent line which is parallel to the secant, touches the graph at point E. You can read the coordinates of A and B from the graph but not E. What are the coordinates of E? What are the ...

The discriminant of a quadratic equation, ax2 + bx + c = 0 is D = b2 – 4ac. If D>0, the quadratic equation has two distinct roots; if D<0, then the equation has no real roots; and, if D=0, the we have two equal roots. Let's apply it in the following problem.

Before I answer the question in the title, we need to do some revisions: This is what you do when you solve a quadratic equation like x^2-3x-10=0 : Solution: => (x-5)(x+2)=0. => If x-5 = 0, then x = 5; if x+2 = 0, then x =-2. The solution is x=5 or x=-2. If you graph the equation, ...
